The resilience portfolio model calls for the identification of key strengths (individual, family, and community) that help people overcome trauma and other adversity. Strengths are organized into three domains: meaning making, regulatory, and interpersonal. We have published several papers trying to identify the most helpful strengths and explore the under-appreciated strengths of marginalized people. No one is good at everything, but everyone can build a portfolio of strengths to cope with life’s inevitable ups and downs.

The newest science suggests that understanding dose is essential for understanding the true burden of trauma. Polyvictimization is the total of all the different types of victimization a person has experienced over their lifetime. Polytrauma is a similar concept that includes other types of adversities. Polyvictimization and polytrauma have been associated with over 40 different health outcomes.
